I'm trying to install Emacs 25.1.rc1 on Ubuntu 15.10, and have pre-installed the usual dependencies i.e.:
However, when I inspect the output of
./configure libxml2/xml2 is off and when I
make && make install emacs and run it,
M-x eww says Emacs wasn't compiled with
I need help!
I had previously installed using Linuxbrew, which had installed
pkg-config as a dependency. (ed. Yes, I know, well it seemed like a good idea at the time!)
Removed it and recompiled Emacs. Configure finds and reports libxml2 as expected.
configure --with_xml2and see if there is any errors in
config.logabout the said
xml2libs. Otherwiae it should get enabled in configure's summary.
pkg-config --modversion libxml-2.0give ?
pkg-config --modversion libxml-2.0 Package libxml-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containinglibxml-2.0.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'libxml-2.0' found`
